Boil Water Advisory Issued for City of Pleasanton, Linn County

TOPEKA, Kan. - The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) has issued a boil water advisory for the city of Pleasanton, which is located in Linn county in East Central Kansas. 

The city is expecting the water system to lose pressure Tuesday evening during scheduled water main maintenance. When such a loss of pressure occurs, it is possible for contaminants to enter the system. Also, chlorine residuals may drop to levels that are inadequate to protect against bacterial contamination.

Effective once service is restored, customers should observe the following precautions until further notice:

The system and/or KDHE will notify area media when the boil water advisory has been rescinded. For more information, call City Administrator Tim Staton, at 913-352-8257.
